Redskins release Thrash following failed physical
Thrash made the Redskins’ roster in 1997 as a free agent from Missouri Southern. After four seasons as a role player, he signed with Philadelphia, where he started for three years and averaged 55 catches and five touchdowns before the Eagles traded him back to the Redskins in 2004.
In his second stint with Washington, Thrash started only 15 of 72 games and scored just four touchdowns, but he carved out a niche as a Joe Gibbs favorite and special teams contributor.
Note - The Redskins signed sixth-round draft pick Robert Henson and seventh-round pick Mitchell on Friday. They released long snapper Jeremy Cain and linebacker Tyson Smith.
Henson will compete for a reserve outside linebacker position following a college career at TCU that included 270 tackles and four interceptions. Mitchell made 153 catches for 2,763 yards and 22 touchdowns at Nevada.
Only first-round pick Brian Orakpo and third-round choice Kevin Barnes remain unsigned.
